Race Cancellation 2020 - Check Back for details on our 2021 event

Thank you for your interest in the Upland Hills "Over the Hills and Through the Farm" trail race.  Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel this year's race due to the ongoing situation in the US, the temporary closure of our school, and the uncertainties about when group gatherings will be advisable again.  We intend to be back in 2021!

For those already registered for the Upland Hills "Over the Hills and Through the Farm" trail race.  Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel this year's race due to the ongoing situation in the US, the temporary closure of our school, and the uncertainties about when group gatherings will be advisable again.

We would ask you to consider allowing us to defer your registration to the 2021 race.  As you can imagine, we have already spent money this year on fliers, advertising, a registration system, etc.  Canceling the race presents us with some financial challenges, including a fee that we have to pay each time that we refund a registration.


Please let us know if you are ok with us deferring your registration to the 2021 race.  It would help us considerably.  If this would not work for you, we completely understand and will be able to refund your registration.  Alternatively, if you would prefer not to defer your registration but rather use it as a donation to our small, nonprofit school, please let us know and we will supply you with a tax receipt.

Sincerely, and with appreciation,

Robert, Brian, and Shannon

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive for a small school, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon. We can supply you with a tax receipt. Please let us know if you would like one sent to you  

 

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

Place
The races will start at Upland Hills Farm, which is located at 481 Lake George Road in Oxford, Michigan. Please enter and park from the Lake George entrance rather than from the Indian Lake Road entrance.
Description

Upland Hills Trail Run is a beautiful course with lots of support (marshals, aid stations and course markings) making it a great race for those new to trail running, while experienced trail runners will relish the challenge of the hills and the variety of scenery.  This is a fantastic event for families, with something for all ages and ability levels to enjoy.

We, the children of Upland Hills School, are putting on this race to support our Share the Adventure program.  We have a high ropes course (which we call our Adventure Playground) that helps us with team building, self-confidence, and physical health. We are very fortunate to have the APG course and we would like to be able to share it with other schools that don't have such things. The money from this race will be used to help other schools to be able to use our course and to fund ongoing maintenance.  "Race Class" is an elective afternoon class that we all chose to take. We are between the ages of 8 and 13. We are so excited to design courses, websites, medals and all the other important things it takes to put on a race. We hope you are able to participate in this one-of-a kind race that we worked so hard to put on.

The race will take you along the beautiful trails of Upland Hills Farm and the scenic trails of Bald Mountain Recreational Area. The trails are dirt with some rolling hills, pasture land, agricultural land, sand, rocks, tree roots, and possibly mud...if it rains! Fun for the entire family! In addition to the 5K/10K/10 Mile distances, there is a fun run (free!) for the youngest children, designed for those up to 8 years old but open to everyone. The Upland Hills Farm will be hosting animals to pet (kittens, sheep, cows, goats... maybe more!). 

Register by April 26th to be guaranteed a shirt. Shirts available after that as supplies last.

The registration table will open at 7:30 am.  All races begin at 8.45am, with wave starts for the different distances separated by a couple of minutes.  10 mile go first, then 10K, then 5K and finally the fun run.  Early bird pricing available until April 10th!  All 5k, 10k and 10 mile registrants receive a technical t-shirt, designed by our students, as part of their registration fee.  You must register by 11:59 pm on April 26th to be guaranteed a shirt.  Additional shirts also available for purchase in our store or at checkout. 

SPECIAL YOUTH PRICING: Youth (18 and under) - $15 entry fee for any event!! Register your youth and the $15 pricing is automatically applied during checkout to anyone aged 18 and under.  Details can be found in the Event Info tab. 

See our Donate and Save option detailed below!!

When you donate $50 you'll receive $10 off your entry fee, donate $25 and receive $5 off your entry fee.

Proceeds from this event will be used to enable us to open our Adventure Playground (Ropes Course), offering team-building, self-confidence and physical health opportunities, to other schools that may not otherwise have this type of opportunity.  It will also go toward ongoing maintenance to keep the course open and up to safety codes.

Thank you for your support!
